[DISCUSSION] Drake - Dark Lane Demo Tapes (One Year Later)

One year ago on May 1st 2020, Drake released a mixtape tape full of unreleased songs or songs that’s have already been leaked or published. Dark Lane Demo Tapes sees Drake moving away from his "hitmaking formula" to more experimentation, with common producers on his previous records being absent on the mixtape. With its production taking influence from lo-fi, UK drill, trap, Soundcloud rap, R&B and soul, the mixtape is noted for not being as cohesive as Drake's previous records. Rooted in dark, ambient sounds through prominent use of unpolished synths, themes on the mixtape include failed relationships, complicated relationships with friends, and braggadocio surrounding Drake's prominence in the music industry.

Success wise, The mixtape was supported by the single "Toosie Slide", which debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, making Drake the first male artist to accomplish three number-one debuts on the chart. All 13 of the mixtape's other songs entered the chart, including the highly anticipated "Pain 1993", which debuted at number seven on the chart, making Drake the tied record holder (with American singer Madonna) for the most top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 with 38.

In my opinion it’s one of his best works in quite sometime since “If Your Reading This It’s Too Late” to be honest. I go back to this mixtape at least 2 times a month because it’s that good, except for that Pain 1993 song... but overall it’s a great project. What are your thoughts ?
